Scepticism!

A healthy dose of scepticism (to doubt the truth of something) is not always a bad thing, but upon consulting my copy of The Cynic’s Dictionary, I found a few additional ways to define this word.

“The beginning of faith.”  (Oscar Wilde)

“The chastity of the intellect.”  (George Santayana)

“The first step on the road to philosophy.”  (Diderot)
